The new model year of the Toyota Avalon will introduce this technology to the Toyota brand. Alongside a number of Toyota-firsts, Apple CarPlay will allow drivers new opportunities to stay connected while out on the road. This feature will be standard on all 2019 Toyota Avalon grades as part of its Entune 3.0 system. This is the first Toyota model to be equipped with Apple CarPlay, but more vehicles will have this technology for their 2019 versions.

What can you do With Apple CarPlay?

This system makes it safer to use your iPhone in the car. CarPlay takes the applications that you want to use while driving and integrates them into your vehicle’s built-in display. You can make calls, get directions, send messages and receive them, listen to music, and access a number of other applications and functions, all while staying focused on the road ahead.

Siri Voice Command

The Apple CarPlay system allows drivers to interact with the Apple assistant, Siri. This version of Siri is specifically designed for driving-related situations. CarPlay also works with the buttons and knobs, and touchscreen in your vehicle. Specially designed versions of your favorite applications have been designed for driving situations, letting you keep your hands on the wheel and remain alert while you’re operating your vehicle.

When will Apple CarPlay be Available in all Toyota Models?

With the integration of Entune 3.0 and Apple CarPlay, it won’t be long before this connectivity technology is available in the entire lineup of Toyota vehicles. Now that the 2019 Toyota Avalon has been released, it is just a bit of a wait until we see the rest of the new 2019 versions of Toyota models integrate this technology as well.
